Buckrakes

Years ago, it was common practice to make a buckrake by cutting off the back part of a car and installing a rake type device that could transport mounds of loose hay from the field to the barn where the hay was transfered to a sling and then pulled up into the mow. Anyone know about this method, and more importantly, how does one make a buckrake?

My dad just bought one of those deals last month. I wondered what it was for. More importantly I don't know how to attach it to anything. I thought it was one of those cable and frame stacker fronts.

My dad used a buckrack on the front of our 1938 JD G. It was built by a local blacksmith and firend. As said in the other post the outer ends of the tines were tipped up slightly when it was loaded. It was tipped up by using a cultivator lift lever. The mounting and back frame were metal, the tines were round poles, probably not hardwood in this country. IN this area people stacked hay in the field with an overshot stacker. The buckrake was used to haul the hay to the stacker. Sometimes after the hay was stacked they came in with a stationary baler to bale it up. I have also seen and worked around, hose powered buckrakes, interesting contraptions. Good luck building one, you might find pictures in some old books.

Most buckrakes that were either put on an old truck,car, or tractor was just tilted back to raise and lower the front of the tines to hold the hay on while transporting. This was done usually by a hand operated winch, as probally none of these vehicles had hydraulics. The frame was usually made of steel. The tines were made of hardwood. They were made about 8 or 10 feet long and about 3in. by 3in. square. Most were made to back up when loading, for more traction while transporting.Each tine had a metal point on it to prevent wear. I have a machine called a "HAYCLONE" MADE IN Columbianna, Ohio by The Wonstetler Co. This machine was a blower type,unlike a corn silage blower, that actually blew the dry hay, brought in by a buckrake up into the mow without chopping it. There were no knives in this blower. I can't find any info. on this machine. Sorry I wrote so much, but actually used an old buckrake, and it was a real step forward from pitching it on a wagon by hand.
